Im sure there are guys running Carbon and Mags with no issues. I just do not want to have to worry about stress fractures, xrays, and replacement.

I did not actually weigh the oem vs aftermarket rotors. But I have these on all my bikes and never had an issue and they still grab as well as I need them too.

Wise decision. When I was running Marvic mags on a TZ 250 in '78, my mentor Roland Cushway recommended X-Rays once a year. On a side note, yesterday on Barf, I read a post where someone claimed to have run his mags on the street for 16 years with no issues. It becomes a question of what you think your life is worth and what you are willing to gamble on.

If I had carbon fiber wheels, I'd need a no-mar tire changer or better. If someone put a stress crack in them that killed me, it would have to be me.

Edit: I suppose if there was a dealer that sold only carbon fiber wheels, changed tires for customers and they had a 3 year record of "no failures," I'd trust 'em.

Weight OEM VS DYMAG

OEM
Front wheel w/rotors 15.5 lbs.
Rear wheel w/rotors, sprocket/sprocket carrier 20.5 lbs.

For a grand total of 36 lbs.


Dymag UP7X HP4
Front wheel w/rotors 14 lbs.
Rear wheel w/rotors, sprocket/sprocket carrier 13.5 lbs.

For a grand total of 27.5 lbs.


Not a massive difference in the front, but a big drop in the rear. 8.5lbs drop in rotating mass is huge. Only down side I have seen was lack of aftermarket sprockets.

Is this comparing OEM HP4 wheels or OEM Cast?

thanks
